Yay! Glad you're back, Smylee!
Sometimes the in-fighting and insults get to be too much. I took a hiatus of about two weeks, got some stuff done around the house, and realized that
the internet is full of trolls, creeps, people who get off on writing cruel things, and just generally cranky people whose lives suck.
In the end, they add nothing. It is frustrating to see all the dimwits who give them a bunch of stars because they were snippy and mean, but there
are three ways of dealing with it: One is to walk away and not be a part of it, one is to keep on plugging and ignore their stupidity, and the last
is to stay and fight, exposing them for who they are.
After some thought, I decided to pare back on my posting, but when I do, I make a special effort to nail these fools and expose them. But that's
just me, I'm ornery and mule-headed when I get mad.
I realized that if everybody who was considerate and nice in their posts left, ATS would become a high school level forum, and it is meant to be so
much more. So I'm glad you're back.
